¹ FDIC insurance applies only to the USD reserve funds. GUSD exist as ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain; tokens are under the user’s self-custody, and are not insured through Gemini.
² Standard fees on select purchase methods such as debit card still apply. Additionally, ERC-20 tokens such as GUSD are programmed using the Ethereum blockchain and will incur gas fees for transfer once under the user’s self-custody.
